Greetings River Rats,
If your at home tonight, check out Discovery Channel Canada at 8 PM EST and watch the show ‘Mighty Ships’. This is the gig I worked on which brought be down to southern continent last November. I was watching Discovery the other day and saw a promo video for the show but I have been unable to locate it online.
Here is the write up for the episode… “Le Boreal is only six months old, sleek and nimble as a yacht, with the luxurious appointments and services of a cruise ship; she’s also built to take on the furious weather and towering waves of the Southern Ocean.”
For me, to have the opportunity to work in Antarctica and South Georgia Island for 17 days was truly an experience of a lifetime. Below are two videos that I shot while I was getting time lapses for the show (which was one of my jobs). The videos do not show the ship or any people for that matter, but they do show the beauty of life on the south seas. You have to watch the Discovery tonight to see how incredible ‘Le Boreal’ is…
